Spheroids: properties, image analysis and culture methods

Spheroids have become an exciting cell culture model, as they better mimic in vivo tissue properties and exhibit a superior capacity for differentiation compared to 2D culture systems. These properties make them well suited for use in drug development and tissue engineering studies, as well as for the study of fundamental biological principles.

Neural Stem Cells

Establishment of protocols for the extraction or differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs) and their expansion in vitro was a great advancement in neurobiology. NSCs grown in culture provide a powerful tool and an accessible model to investigate human neurodevelopment and cell biology. This article discusses neural stem cell sources, isolation, culture methods and differentiation potential.

Clonogenic assay: what, why and how

A clonogenic assay, also known as a colony formation assay, is an in vitro cell survival assay. It assesses the ability of single cells to survive and reproduce to form colonies. This blog highlights: Clonogenic assay applications. How to perform a clonogenic assay with important considerations to make along the way. Quantifying your colonies and plotting a survival curve. Using label-free microscopy and confluence detection as an alternative, time and cost effective clonogenic assay protocol
